OTHER INFORMATION

The Fort Bend Astronomy Club was formed in the fall of 1984 by a group of amateur astronomers in the city of Stafford, Texas. In 1985, FBAC merged with the Southwest Astronomy Club and continued developing it's goal of serving people in the community who love astronomy. Club members have highly diverse interests: CCD and film astrophotography, deep sky observing, minor planet and supernova search are among the areas of astronomy in which club members participate. Members own and use telescopes from the smallest refractors to giant trailer transported reflectors. Many of us enjoy only a pair of binoculars or just our eyes to view the spectacle of the night sky.
